this is indeed part of the 2-27-69 show, the whole show has is on Fillmore West 1969: The Complete Recordings, but this was unfortunately a limited release that is very hard to find. The 3-disc distillation Fillmore West 1969 isn't nearly as good, imo they left out some of the strongest material from that run.

the 4-17-69 release on itunes is a major ripoff. i think i ponied up for it only b/c i couldn't find it anywhere else at the time. it's a good show though, the TIFTOO suite is the best part i think.

If your into torrenting you could find this stuff on some of the major torrent sites; bt junkie is a good one. I believe much of the download series is on there too. Yes it's illegal, but unless you have $2,000 to shell out for the box set music, it may be your only choice.

edit - you *could* also download those shows form etree or lossless legs legally, but they won't be in the vault sound quality like on SMR or the box set.

that Fillmore West box set is probably one of the best box sets around, at least for live music; i did not purchase the original, but fortunately someone did make me a copy of their box set and the bonus disk that came with; if they have distilled it in any way, the only word that comes to mind is 'criminal', which should not indicate i am against partial show releases, because i am not, but for that run of shows and from that era, yes it's wrong

its totally wrong Arb! i just can't for the life of me understand why they limited the printing of this boxset. i would gladly shell out almost as much for this as the upcoming Europe '72: The Complete Recordings. ok maybe not quite that much, but $100 easy.
